Intel Introduces Atom S1200, World's First Low-Power, Server-Class Processor

Intel has revealed their new Intel Atom S1200 low-power, 64-bit server-class System-on-Chip (SoC), which are suitable for high-density microservers in data centers. Today, more than 20 low-power designs including storage, microservers and networking system use the Intel Atom processor S1200 processor family.

“We recognized several years ago the need for a new breed of high-density, energy-efficient servers and other datacenter equipment. Today, we are delivering the industry’s only 6-watt SoC that has key datacenter features, continuing our commitment to help lead these segments,” said Diane Bryant, Vice President & General Manager, Datacenter and Connected Systems Group, Intel.

With the continuous and growing usage of the public cloud, high density servers based on low-processors provide users with the desired performance they need while significantly reducing its energy consumption, one of the biggest cost drivers in a data center.

The Intel Atom processor S1200 product family is the first low-power SoC that ensures server-class levels of reliability and manageability. The SoC includes two physical cores with a total of four threads enabled with Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology with 64-bit memory support, a memory controller that supports up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, Intel Virtualization Technologies, eight lanes of PCI Express 2.0, Error-Correcting Code and other I/O interfaces integrated from Intel chipsets.
